AN APPEAL' FROM THE W. 0. T. U.

temptedA Circular Sent Out la Haste
Bearing on the Subject Tbe Instruc
tions. The opinion advanced by Capt. J. M.
Adair of the secretary of state's office
at Springfield holding that uudcr tbe
lawa of Illinois women will not be per
mitted to vote for university trustees at
t he approaching election.bas aroused the
W. C. T. U.of tbe state which will In
sist upon tbe right of female sunrsge
in balloting for tbe officers named. To
that end a circular has been issued by a
committee of the Illinois W.C.T U .com
posed of Ada H. Kepley and Mrs. Ella
M. Orr, with instructions to send it to
every voting precinct in the state, and a
copy has been submitted to the Argus.
with the request that it be published. It
begins as follows:
To the Women Klectors of Illinois.
SJistebs: The newness of the law al
lowing women to vote for public school
t ffiiers, ttnd tbo fact that women are now
demanding to be registered in order to
vote for trustees of the State University
at Champaign. Nov. 8th, has caused the
expression of various opinions favorable
and adverse to our claim to vote at that
election. In Chicago Lawrence P.
Boyle, attorney of the Cook county com
misaioners, and who took the case against
the women of Cook county in the matter
of voting for county superintendent
schools up to tbe supreme
sued an opinion favorable
clerks and jua
court, has is
and tbe Cook
have orderi'd all
ea of election to register
the women, prepare separate ballot boxes
for tbem, and receive tbeir ballots. They
will also furnish the Cook county women
with tickets. Winnebago county will do
the same, and Effingham county expects
to do likewise. I q-iot3 tor your instruc
tion the following, taken from a written
opinion on the subject by Henry B. Kep-
lev. a lawyer of Effingham, ill:
Under the provisions oi me acv oi ioi
entitling women to vote lor cmcers oi
schools, women have a right to vote for
trustees of tte University or Illinois at
tbe ensuing November elections.
The vote for said officers at said elec
tions comes under and within tbe pro
visions of tbe act of 1891, commonly
known as the Australian ballot law.
The first section of the act excepts
from the provisions thereor, only, elec
tions for trustees of schools, school direc
tor, members of boards of education.
and officers of road districts not under
township orgamz t n
The election of trustees oi uie univers
Uv of Illinois not being excepted rrom
the rrnviaion9 of the Australian ballot
law. but comes wunin us provisions
Furthermore, tbe law providing tor me
election of tbe said trustees provides that
said election -shall be goverted in
every particular by the laws of this state
poverninff a General election . " Revised
Statute. 1891. oaee 1430, sec. 9.
It is tbe dutv of tue county clerks of
the rennet-live count'es of this state to
provide and furnish separate Dallots for
women voters at such elec
tinn-. which ballots should be
in f-nrrUnrfi with the provisions of
the Australian ballot act, and should
contain the naice of no other person than
tho5 to be voted for. for trustees of the
TTniversitv of Illinois .
Section 15 of the Australian ballot lw
provides that the county clerks shall fur
nish ballots ror an voters at sucu cicu
This applies to ballots to be cast by
women as well as to ballots to be cast by
Section 2 of the act of 1891. entitling
women to vote for school officers, pro
vides that the ballot to be cast by women
voters at such election, shall not contain
tbe name of any other person to be voted
for except such school officers.
Therefore, to carry into tff ;ct the pro
visions of the several parts of the law re
ltins to the matter, the voting must be
under the provisions of the Australian
haiint law. and the countv clerks must
nrnvirfo and furnisb ballots for men con
tuinino- t.h names of all persons to be
voted for. and ballots for women con
tainicg only the names of the persons to
be voted for for trustees of the University
Instructions as to Registration
Then follows the form of the ticket for
university trustees o the four parties,
democratic, republican, prohibition and
people's, and holding that the su
preme court of tbe state bavins failed to
pass on the question of woman suffrage
yet, the law is not esiaonsaea as lovaiia.
It urges tbe appointment of committees
to call on the county clerks and ask for
the provision of tickets for university
trustees, and to provide ballot boxes for
the same, and then tbe following as to
The registration books are now hang
ing at each poll ng or voting place in
your counties and towns. Qo and place
your names thereon, ana trial or your
women friends. Remember to use your
own baptismal names, not your bus-,
band's, if you are married. If the
judges have not bung up books large
enough to bold your names, ask tbem by
committees to put up a book for your
use. It would be well if you fear your
women will not register to appoint com
mittees and canvass your voting precincts
and present this list, or a duplicate of it
ti your judges to copy in the registra
ton book Nov. 1.
Tbe above is to be done in view of the
f tct that many women are not well aware
o ' the need f registration . Urge all
who have not registered to appear before
i lie board or registration, jnov. l, to see
if tneir names are on tbe registry lint, and
to demand that it be put on the boox the
tme as male electors names are.
If you are refused registration, appear
before the judges oi election on .Nov. ,
and demand to swear your vote in.
Leave no atone unturned to exercise
inherent, as well as your legal right, to
express your wishes at theoallot box in
Illinois Nov. 8 for school purposes.
Don't fail to register next Tuetdty.
